Notes

I'm sure all of you know that this is the 1st show without Mickey Hart for a few years. Yes you can D/L the show from GDLive or Archive.org or you have already had it for years. BUT! This is a new perspective. I recently borrowed 1st Gen Reels of an AUDIENCE recording of this show! It is amazing to hear the audience and bands interaction. This is NOT an A+ recording but I'm an engineer and remastered to the best of my abilities. There are some cuts and even a little bleed from whatever was recorded over when the dub was made. My friend Don was there and got the dubs. The masters cannot be tracked down but these were 1st gens! I'm 99% sure this recording never really got out there. It was a 1st gen .5" reel. I already forgot if it was 7.5ips or 15ips. The tape was recycled too, meaning it was taped over to record this show. My friend knew the taper but can't get anymore details. The reel sat for years before we did this transfer. There was more on the reels that the community was happy to hear about too. It was a mono recording and I remastered it. I'm happy to have been able to restore this gem for the masses to hear. I've gotten so much from you all it is great to give some back!!

I had vined this in summer of 2002 but this might be the first data distrobution.

Here's to a full decade of missing Jerry Garcia! I hope you enjoy the early audience recording! and remember if you must clap, keep the tempo! ;)

Heartfelt gratitude to Clinton Vadnais & friends and Archive.org for this fabulous gift this morning.

I was fiddling around with my Pandora thumbs to improve their customized algorithm for me, and up popped "Good Lovin'" from the album 3 for the vault. I was blown away, overjoyed, delighted, you name it. So I looked for the show in the archives, and sure enough 3 of the 4 can't be heard due to commercial considerations. But this one is there, and what a diamond in the not so rough...

My love affair with all things PigPen intensifies with the onset of spring. If you feel this way too, just stop what you are doing, turn on the show, and get back to your business.

A very basic tech tip: if you got cheap laptop speakers like me, set them at about 85% volume and listen from across the room.

As for the audience applause cadence issue?
Well, check out our beloved tell-it-like-it-is-man Neil Young a few weeks ago at Carnegie Hall:

Oh yes it will stream ........ read the previous review so just had to give it a try. And it 'rang like a bell'.

Maybe njpg needs a new computer ?

I'll give it 5 stars 'cos I'm in a good mood.

All the best,

This show won't stream...I don't know if anybody cares. Anyway, it's good but not really a keeper. The tape flip between Other One & Wharf Rat is especially heartbreaking.

Subject: first time
whoops, my mistake, 2-18 was first time played for Bertha, Loser, Wharf Rat. 2-19 was first time played for Bird Song and Deal.
Reviewer: Stefan W. - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 27, 2006
Subject: Its worth a download
If you are not sure wether get this one, just download I Know You Rider, and choose, if you like hearing the audience going crazy, or if you prefer sterile soundboards (which you wonôt get anyways).I have to admit, that this recording is not one of the best Iôve heard, but sometimes Iôm (and I bet some of you too) in the mood to listen to a concert in minor quality with the people`s reactions , just to get an image of how it has been back then.

Subject: Another perspective
Most of us have this run as clean boards. This here is a great inital taper attempt and evidence of modern day technical assistance thus giving us an above average AUD with the sound and flavor of good ole Dead,can you say PIG!PEACE 2006'
